Description

Fromtheoldtothenew was originally released in 1996 and is the second full length on Peacefrog from Steve'Stasis' Pickton.Growing up as a teenager in East London, break-dancing and writing graffiti with B12's Mike Golding, StevePickton's musical education moved along a familiar path, from hip-hop to Electro and onto Techno. Schoolinghimself in music theory and purchasing a sampler Pickton set about making his own music.Releasing on a whose who of seminal UK electronic labels including A.R.T., Likemind, Otherworld and B12 undervarious pseudinums Pickton's UK take on lush Detroit melodies fused techno, funk, hip-hop, dub, blues and jazzinto a dense concoction all of his own making.Fromtheoldtothenew saw Pickton slip off his earlier techno shackles and head for uncharted electrconic waters.The echo chamber dramatics of Gun and wayward lurch of Ale House Blues were a long way from Detroit, whilefew tracks have demonstrated the sheer breadth of electronica more dramatically than Utopia Planetia. All in all it'smore jazz, less tech without losing the soul.
